The Boston Town Area Committee Small Grant Scheme is now open for applications.

If you are a fully constituted community group or organisation delivering projects for the benefit of residents in any of the town centre wards of Boston then please consider applying to the Boston Town Area Committee Small Grant Scheme.  You can apply for up to a £1,000 contribution towards a large project or to fund a project in its entirety, whether it is for hire of a venue, small items of equipment, insurance costs and/or publicity materials.

We are also committed to working in partnership with local people to deliver the council’s overall priorities, which are to:

  • Secure better services for less money, and
  • Share opportunities and responsibilities wherever possible.

There will be three rounds in this financial year as follows:
